Anyone having any luck out there? Havent seen much for pressure on this lake this winter...anything worthwhile in there during the winter?

I drive by this lake every morning and afternoon and there has only been a max of 3 houses/portables there at one time.

I drove by there a little less than a month ago and it was crazy there was vehicles and portables everywhere. I've heard of crappies coming out of the weeds in 12-18fow. Other than that dont know much about the lake.

I was out there last weekend in the extreme cold. Marked fish but no takers. The lake is completely safe for driving.

I have been out there a few times without much luck, caught alot of small stuff, nothing worth keeping. (Caught a 24in pike on 2lb test though, that was pretty fun!!) I have caught some decent gills and crappies in the past, but haven't been able to get into them this year. Not a ton of them, but a few here and there if you work for them.

I was out there about a month ago on a Sunday and it was a zoo. Not the funnest day!

Are we talking about the same lake? The one between east bush lake rd and west bush lake rd? crazy.gif I drove by saturday morning as well (10am) and it was a ghost town. 2 houses out there...not a single vehicle.

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
